HuntingLife.com | HuntingInsider.com
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your profile picture may be visible to the public in the context of your comment.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. Those images could be used to geo-locate your favorite hunting spots. Don’t let that happen.

HuntingLife Media, its advertisers or analytics partners may send a cookie to your computer or use web beacons to gather statistical information. A cookie does not personally identify you. It is simply a way to know that a particular web browser was used to visit our sites. A web beacon does not personally identify you. It is simply a way to automatically send information about pages and content used to an analysis tool. Cookies will soon be going away whether we like it or not and this will all have to change how the web works.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
What We Do with Your Personal Information
We may buy or sell a company or property. If we sell a business, we may transfer some or all of your information as a part of the sale so that you will continue to receive the service being provided to you or for other business purposes.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. We often publish press releases which google considers duplicate content but we think it is valuable for our readers and we add in content, original articles and sponsored content. All sponsored content will be labeled as such and we follow all FTC regulations.
Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Of course, you will have to tell us every single post that you commented on so we can actually find your data and then you could of course screenshot it yourself or copy and paste it without our help.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Otherwise we don’t even look at your data and we certainly will not share it with anyone mostly becuase even if we could figure out how to even look at it, we have far too much to do in our lives that is absolutely more fun than staring at user data. We do appreciate you all.
